Business integration models in the context of web services.

Song, W. and Chen, D. and Chung, J-Y. (2005) 'Business integration models in the context of web services.', in IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering, ICEBE 2005, 12-18 October 2005, Beijing ; proceedings. Los Alamitos, CA: IEEE, pp. 697-704.


E-commerce development and applications have been bringing the Internet to business and marketing and reforming our current business styles and processes. The rapid development of the Web, in particular, the introduction of the semantic web and web service technologies, enables business processes, modeling and management to enter an entirely new stage. Traditional web based business data and transactions can now be analyzed, extracted and modeled to discover new business rules and to form new business strategies, let alone mining the business data in order to classify customers or products. In this paper, we investigate and analyze the business integration models in the context of web services using a micro-payment system because a micro-payment system is considered to be a service intensive activity, where many payment tasks involve different forms of services, such as payment method selection for buyers, security support software, product price comparison, etc. We will use the micro-payment case to discuss and illustrate how the web services approaches support and transform the business process and integration model..

Item Type:Book chapter
Keywords:Business integration model, Ontologies, Micro-payment, Semantic description framework.
